Re: Huh... why bother with copper?

said by whiteyonenh:

I can't see them competing in a market where the standard package for Time Warner in this area is 8/512, and their fastest is 3/768 at the moment. I have the Roadrunner Turbo from Time Warner that just recently got upgraded from 10/1 to 15/1. I'd like to see them compete with that, but I can't see it with copper, or without doing something ala Uverse.

They really need to come up with a long-term strategy, as this 768/128, 1.5/384, 3/768 stuff is getting really old. I would love to see FIOS/FAST in my future, but it's not going to happen if they can't/won't upgrade to it.

With cable companies in the area still on Docsis 1.1, and now offering 8/512 or 15/1 from Time Warner, or 6/1 or 8/2 from Comcast, they need to catch up or be left in the dust.
And 16/2 for Comcast in some markets.
